Just got a 1000 plus install for a large hoa that we will be doing. They sure do look good right now!

This is like my new favorite annual to plant especially if they are incorporated around limestone rocks.

Vincas, Coleus, and summer Begonias are what is mainly used down here. I personally cant stand the standard impatiens in winter, but the new guinea impatiens are sweet!

Dont know about florida..but up here they will get some type of worm/caterpillar around late july mid august. Once you see little holes in the flower buds or little poops on the leaves.....you have only a short time to treat or they will be toast for the year.

why treat just rip out and replace, more money in your pocket thats how I see it. To me annuals are throw away plants. If we get 6 months outta them I'm happy, if they die they get replaced.
